Stayed at the Palm house in 1996. No pier there, but there was a pier next door that we were able to use at the Lions Club property. Unfortunately, when down that way last year, Lions club dock was destriyed, I think by the hurricane. Unless they rebuilt the dock this year, you have a small walk to pier. Maybe Victoria house? Think theirs may have gates? Ramone's does let people swim and snorkel off theirs, not sure about the rules. That is quite a distance into town though. Hope this helps.
